Alright...now that I've cleared the air on the failed dish, I needed to replace it with another. So, I decided on "Pork Adobo." I have personally tried and tested it in my kitchen using the stove. But, I have never tried cooking it in a crock-pot. Honestly, after being defeated by the previous recipe...I did have my fingers and eyes crossed on this one. But yet, I felt this is a fail proof recipe. I don't believe anyone could mess it up. It's either that...or I am in denial. (Lol!) Anyways...here I go again. I'm about to release the crockin once more.
- 1-1/2 pound of Pork Butt or Chopped Pork
- 1/4 Cup of White Vinegar **If you want...you could add 1/2 Cup to kick it up a notch
- 1 Clove of Garlic, chopped finely
- 1/3 Cup of Soy Sauce
- 1 Cup Water
- 1 teaspoon Whole Peppercorn
- 2 pieces of Bay Leaves
- If using Pork Butt...you can just add it to the crock-pot. However, if you're using Chopped Pork...You might want to brown it in a skillet first.
- Add the remaining ingredients and gently stir in to mix.
- Cover the crock-pot and set on LOW for 6-7 hours
- OR set on HIGH for 3-4 hours
Vinegar, Bay Leaves, Soy Sauce,
Garlic, and Peppercorn.
(Use Whole Peppercorn)
Simply add all ingredients to the
Gently mix/stir the ingredients
until incorporated. Please do
not grind peppercorn. (lol)
Cover and set on LOW for 6-7 hours
set on HIGH for 3-4 hours
Now it's ready to be poured over
hot rice or served with Pancit.
I learned the hard way. You see...the reason I stressed the importance of whole peppercorns is because my husband bought the one that you can grind. And because I didn't know how to open the lid...I grind the dang thing. Next thing I know...it somewhat changed the taste of the Pork Adobo. Now the shocker is that it still tasted very good. I mean my Grand-babies ate it all; Meanwhile, the two year old was busy saying, "Yum Mama!" To me...the 1/2 cup of vinegar was a wee bit too much for me; Yet, when cooking it on a stove-top...it works just fine. So be sure to add the vinegar according to your preferred taste. ( :
